These young kids are oozing with talent, said Chamblee, following his opening round 3-over-par 73 at Grayhawk Golf Club. It is a different type of golfer out here in that they hit it high, hard and very, very long. Some of the drives these guys hit today just blew me away.
A full-time GOLF CHANNEL analyst and Scottsdale resident, Chamblee is competing at the Frys Electronics Open this week on a sponsor exemption. While he did not post the score he wanted on Thursday, he is ready to do battle on Friday and attempt to move up the leaderboard.
I forgot what it feels like to be mad and frustrated for five hours, joked Chamblee after the round. I looked a little more like a golfer on the front nine when I started to hit some good shots and putts.
When asked by GOLF CHANNELs Iain Page if he would rather practice or go have a cold one, Chamblees response was simple: A cold one. My nerves definitely need a cold one.
